Pistorius Escapes From Prison

 

By Elton Camp

 

When he blew his girlfriend away

“It’s murder,” the prosecutor did say

 

“No, I thought a prowler breaking in.

I’m not guilty of murder or of any sin.”

 

Pistorius’ story they weren’t buying

For his crime, authorities were trying

 

For homicide, five years in the pen

His incarceration he had to begin

 

To ensure in the cell he would remain

The warden attached a ball and chain

 

The next morning, his mouth was agape

For the sly Pistorius had made his escape

 

He slipped away with the greatest ease

And went fleeing on his hands and knees

I like it Elton! Very witty and your punchline is very funny. As a minor point, personally I think your last verse sounds slightly awkward - would 'greatest of ease' be better and then tweak the last line to fit.

This was in the news a few years back. The guy had artificial legs which is what made it unusual. .. read more
